IT'S ONLY WORDS - READINGS AND POEMS

It’s Only Words - Readings and Poems

 

You may wish to write your own words.  Nonetheless, at times like this, it may seem impossible to express your feelings on paper – don’t worry, I can help you to do this.  

Alternatively, you may find it easier to use comforting words from a poem or reading.  The process of finding just the right words can seem a little daunting.  However, by listening to your thoughts and ideas,

I will be able to guide you, providing suggestions from the comprehensive collection of readings and poetry which I have amassed over the years.

MUSIC

 

Music can evoke the widest range of emotions.  Just a few bars from a certain song can take you back to a place in time in a way that the written word never can.  You may wish to choose one of your loved one’s favourites; a thought provoking piece of music, or even a piece to make you smile..

 

You can have the choice of recorded music or perhaps live musicians or singers..

 

Here are a few suggestions – some traditional, some uplifting and others a little quirky..

 

 

Hymns

 

Abide With Me

Amazing Grace

The Old Rugged Cross

Jerusalem

Dear Lord And Father Of Mankind

All Things Bright and Beautiful
